Just another gorgeous golden bronze look

Hello Everyone

Hope that you all are having a great week. 

I created this look using a slightly different technique, it turned out to be really pretty (pictures are not doing justice to how beautiful it looks in person). It's kinda bronze smokier kinda look with a pop of gold. Great everyday wear, nothing complicated and you can use this technique to create just any other look. (Many of you may probably know the technique already)

After seeing the pictures I realized, it would look perfect with red lips or berry lips for an evening or night look. Also, I have used brown shade here to darken it, you can use black if you want a more intense look. So, if you want you can alter it the way you want.

Can you see Nars Albatross highlighter on my cheeks :D :D 
Hope you all liked another neutral look from me. It's little different, isn't it, hope you agree with me? :D :D 

Have a great week. 



  1. Just curious...why do you mix foundations? I've never heard of people mixing NARS Sheer Glow with MAC Studio Fix. Would love to know :)

  2. @ Fieran: I mix them to get the right shade, most of the times. Sheer Glow gives a glowy luminous finish whereas Studio Fix gives a perfect matte finish, so, sometimes I mix them when I want not too luminous and not too matte finish, if that makes sense.

  3. That's a cool idea :) I've heard of people mixing foundations before, but never those two brands. Another good foundation for a matte finish is MAC's Matchmaster. It's one of my favourites for good oil control as my skin is quite oily. I like NARS Sheer Glow too but I have to blot my skin a bit as the oil does come out.

    Thanks for the tip :)
